This week’s Watershed Moment features Rachelle Bostwick, owner and farmer of Earthkeeper Farm, who is here to discuss Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and the importance of eating fresh, local produce.
On how CSA works, “basically you pay a fee at the beginning of the season and pick up a share of your produce every week,” said Bostwick. “We have a wide variety of crops that go into each week’s share. It’s a very affordable way to get organic produce.”
Bostwick said CSA’s presence encourages participants to eat out less and helps support local farming.
“You really have a connection with the farmer and the farm that grows [the produce],” said Bostwick.
